The Maternal Child Health (MCH) sleep and settling model of care provides an evidenced informed approach to supporting parents and caregivers who have raised a sleep and settling concern. It supports the delivery of consistent and high-quality MCH services by MCH Service Providers for all Victorian children and families. To support the application of the sleep and settling model of care the following resources have been developed:
A suite of 14 parent factsheets have been developed to provide information and support on typical sleep patterns, how to prevent sleep concerns, how to respond when a sleep concern is identified and information on self-care for parents and caregivers. These are available from the Child health (0-6) page on the Better Health Channel.
